Peter Pan!

Wow, what a performance from our incredibly talented Year 3/4 children.  The acting, prop making and singing showed just what an amazing team they are. We hope you all enjoyed watching. Thank you again for all of your support/costume making and line practicing!

Another fabulous, busy term for the lovely Otter Class. We have been busy learning to use online software to share information, including QR codes, graphs and presentations. We are all confident in explaining how to stay safe online and spot advertisements or links that may not be ok. During our gym sessions, the children have taken a leading role in setting up equipment to test their balance, co-ordination and gymnastic skills. During our Science sessions, we have created soem fantastic magnetic games, using our knowledge of forces to support us. Well done, Otters!

Another busy and fantastic term for the Otters.

 As part of our Science learning, we have really enjoyed learning about states of matter. A particular highlight was performing our States of Matter dance. It has really helped us to remember the movement and placement of particles in solids, liquids and gases.

In Geography, we have learnt all about different biomes and climate zones in geography and loved learning about the animals that live there. We used the iPads to find most of the information out ourselves, showing independence and ownership of our learning. 

As we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus, we have been making links between the angel’s message about Jesus and the words of the prophet Isaiah. We were also fortunate to have Father Bill visit us and tell us all about the Jesse Tree.

A particular highlight for us, as Otter Class teachers, has been the children's writing. The children have worked so hard on their handwriting, spelling and sentence structure this term, and it is amazing to see their progression. 

Next term, the children will attend swimming lessons every Friday morning. This will be their second PE session of the week.  Please ensure your child wears their swimming costume under their PE school uniform to save changing time. 

We hope you all have a restful break and thank you, as always, for your continued support, 

Mrs Isaac and Mrs Paradise

This term has flown by! The children have been working incredibly hard and should be so proud of themselves, as we are of them! 

We introduced our new RE curriculum this term, focusing on Creation and Covenant. The children have reflected on how they can be Stewards of Creation and look after 'Our Common Home.' The Otters have also been leading their Class Assemblies, based on the coming Sunday's gospel. They have prepared and presented these beautifully, many using their computing skills to share their very own Powerpoints with the class. 

They have also been fantastic story-tellers, basing their writing on the books, 'Mrs Noah's Garden' and 'Gigantic.' We have been focusing on previous learning and re-capping skills and expectations. The children have enjoyed writing their narratives up, using their beautiful handwriting that we have been practising, daily. 

In addition, the children have learnt all about Georgian Bath. They loved making their very own 'Sham Castles,' and looking at Georgian Bath on our recent trip. 

Another highlight from this term has been the introduction of our Mental Health Toolkit through the animated sessions 'Adventures on the Inside.' We hope you have enjoyed continuing these lessons at home. If you have not managed to yet, please look on the PSHE curricullum page to download activities you can do with your child to continue these important conversations. 

We hope you enjoy a well deserved rest with your children, and look forward to welcoming you back in Term 2. 

Mrs Isaac and Mrs Paradise.
